Years ago, when he was driving for Brabham, Patrese took his car into the lead in the San Marino GP in the closing laps of the race. Then, in his wilder days, he no sooner was in the lead than his concentration lapsed and he had an accident.

And if a Ferrari didn’t win, at least the locals had one of their own kind to cheer.
